I don't get the additional hold up.  First time was so far away that I think they made the right call, but people already know the lineup and have seen the figs - time to just get them out.  If anything, I think the figs could help build up demand for the game during the delay.

I gotta admit - this thing looks cooler than I was first expecting based on the teeny little picture available.  Its hard to tell depth, but does it look a little on the small side to anyone else?  Doesn't look as long as an AT-AT to me...

I'm never dissapointed to see troopers lining the pegs.  The fact that you can probably find a stormtrooper, DS Trooper, or Biker Scout at every other store right now says that they've done a great job with assortments this last year.  I'd bet more troopers are bought than anything else out of these lines because everyone wants at least one and a lot of us get multiples.  I'd also bet that they could cook through any current stock of troopers in no time with an itial clearance markdown - not always the case on more of the character driven figs.

For pegwarmers around the twin cities, plan on seeing pretty much any Wave 4 or any Wave 6 figs outside of the McSnowtroopers.  :P

The Vintage Collection / Re: Animated Clone Wars 3D Figures

Hasbro has stated in past Q&A that the Clone Wars figures will be done in a style that is in keeping with the rest of the 3.75" figure line.

They are not looking to do "Animated Style" figures any time soon (according to the answer I remember reading).

The Animated Figures that sold at Target sold through but if I recall correctly, only because of deep clearancing from Target. Sure the Clones always sold and the WalMart 3-pack sets were barely in stock for the DVD releases, but I would say any speed of sell-through on anything done in the animated style was purely due to a lower manufacturing quantity on each item.

I think Hasbro acknowledges that the best bet for any action figure item is to keep it compatible with the 3.75" platform/system. They have tried other sizes and styles and they always ended up as failures.

I'm okay with an animated style, but would definitely prefer a more realistic look to the CW figs.  As for the CW Cartoon animated figs, these sold thru really really well from what I remember. The troopers were gone instantly, even the basic white ones.  I do think I saw 1-2 figs on clearance at some point, but literally just 1-2 of them, which is less than what we've seen with every other line of SW figure.

Give credit to Lucas for being a merchandising genius.  He made his fortune by securing the merchandising to Star Wars ages ago and the legacy continues on with all the cloneskittleshadowranktroopers coming out now.  ::)

Boys! Play nice. One of you has to eat crow tomorrow night.

I will be eating steak and drinking a Sam Adams from my green and gold victory mug.   ;D

I could take it or leave it.  Won't be bummed if it never comes our way.

Iron Spidey was pretty recent and should probably be pretty cheap on ebay.  Same for the Blade figures - they sat around here for quite a while.  I still maintain that Deadpool is too much of a stretch for them to re-do. 

I picked up the rest of the FF figures tonight :-X  Silly, I know, but for $21.50 for the whole set (plus $8 shipping, I couldn't pass).  I got the Invisible Woman and Namor to pull a head swap on and I can probably sell Mole Man and Reed for the same amounts again locally. 

21.50 for the set?  Was that a clearance find or Ebay?

Coming soon to a TV near you...

Wow, the Giants plan to tickle Favre into a loss?  Just hope its closer than that 35-13 trouncing earlier this year.  Hey, wasn't Favre named the offensive player of the week based on that game?   ;D

Anyone going to Cloverfield tonight?

I was planning on going, but Marcus theatres refuses to show it.  Main reason I love that theatre is because of their UltraScreen which is 75feet wide x 32 feet tall...Guess I'll have to to to a "regular" theatre.

bastards  >:(

God, that's lame

Agreed.  Is this just a money issue you think?  >:(

Mmmmmm yyyyeaaahhh.  And I'm referred to as an over confident Packers fan.   ::)

Chicago holds a 27-18-2 lead in its all-time regular season series with the Giants, which dates back to 1925. The Giants' Tom Coughlin is 2-4 against the Bears as a head coach, including 1-2 since coming to New York. There most recent game was a 21-16 narrow victory thanks to a last ditch game winning drive from Eli. 

Last time the Packers played the Giants, Packers won 35-13, barely edging past New York by a little more than three TDs.

From the link:
...and the Silver Savage, which is what the Silver Surfer was called when he fought in a gladiatorial match against the Hulk during the “Planet Hulk” storyline, where he carried his surfboard like a shield!

I might be the only person alive that enjoyed the Mojo sub-story, so I'm ok with Spiral coming out.  I'd suggest they're reaching to suggest this is a Legend of some sort, but that's really just a semantics argument. 

I'd probably pick up the Adam Warlock and then just look at the rest before deciding.  Of course wave 5 is so far out for me it's ridiculous, we still haven't seen wave 3 up here at a regular retailer. 

I 'liked the Mojo storyline, just not a fan of the figures.  If I could get any character from that tale, it would be Quark.
